with education. there is a way of solving this. the key is for the republicans and democrats to work together. >> thank you. >> there is a way to solve all of these challenges. while my opponent talked a very good game, the fact of the matter is his actions do not match his rhetoric. he is opposed to a comprehensive immigration reform. he is in favor of the arizona law and most of it was declared unconstitutional by the united states supreme court. my opponent thought the arizona law was so good he wanted to bring it here to nevada. the one thing i cannot believe he is opposed to is the dream act. he voted against it. at 80% or 20%. he voted against 100% of it. what does it say? it says if you are a youngster who came to the united states through no fault of your own and you are in college or you volunteered for military use, you should have a path to legal status. it could not be any more simple than themy opponent voted against it. net. he is on record saying if he remains in the united states senate, he will vote against it again. the latino families in the state and in this country deserv
. investment in education long- term is an investment in jobs. our children have to be able to compete in the 21st century, so this is not about building jobs. this is about bringing those companies here and building on the assets. we can do it, but we have to work to do that. >> what about jobs and being specific about jobs? >> congress does not create jobs. congress can prohibit or promote in the private sector, a predominantly small business, so i have spent a good deal of time talking to people in small business. one thing they find is the rash of lawsuits. i have a law that would change that as opposed to litigation. secondly, if you speak to small business people, they are talking about the uncertainty created by taxes coming forward on january 1. i support and now that we have not allowed those taxes to go up. now president obama said we ought to extend those tax cuts. we need to do it once again. regulatory reform, i have had a number of bills on which i have voted that have gone to the senate. we need senators to our. >> the second question comes from me, and it is for you. yo

, jobs, the education for their kids, for businesses, and these are the issues we have to solve. their unemployment is higher thanks to my opponent than the general population. we have to put together jobs programs that work. every time my opponent says she voted for a jobs act, the unemployment has gone higher, higher in the state. that has to change. i can remember when she was saying, the stimulus will have 35,000 jobs in nevada. we were losing 65,000 jobs in nevada every time she talks about jobs growth, unemployment goes higher. >> thank you. our next question. >> one of the biggest issues we face on the federal law for is our overwhelming federal debt. has gone beyond just a domestic problem that will affect future generations. it has become a national security issue and a foreign- policy issue. what specific steps do you propose the united states take to get out of debt or at least make our interest payments easier to live with? >> we have to get our debt under control. and and wasteful spending. this is the way we do it. the first thing we do is stop giving tax breaks to
- college educated white women as a group that has moved some in the last couple of weeks. non-college educated white men are a no-fly zone for the president. but the women were up for grabs. have you noticed anything like that? is that a metric you are looking at? >> it is. everybody talks about the women's vote. there are a number of factors. people do not realize this -- john mccain won white women by seven points. that is not enough to win overall. obviously, he lost by seven points. when you look at white women voters, there are groups that are more likely to vote republican. those include white women without college degrees, white women who are married, and women with children. when you look at the differences between white women who are married and white women who are single, whether it be they are not married, they are widowed, or they are divorced, those groups vote overwhelmingly for obama. if ron is right and the president is making gains with non-college educated white women, that is problematic for our side. i have not seen as much as -- as much of a shift as he ha
on the tv in order to be informed or educated. you normally turn on to your favorite station to have your views reinforced. i think about the declaration of independence. we ought to have a recent -- decent respect for the opinions of mankind. we have lost a decent respect that both sides should give to one another. if you take a look of the declaration of independence, the first amendment, speech, assembly, etc. -- they wanted a marketplace of ideas. is about tolerating the other person's point of view. it does not mean you have to agree with it. it means to tolerate it. i think executive experience, having been in congress for 12 years, i give you speeches, but i was never once responsible for articulating a vision and then finding the number of seats in the house to deliver it. at the end of the day, the leadership must come from the men and women who have been given broad responsibility, the senate leaders, house leaders, and governors. is there really people to stand up and say, and off is enough. it is intolerable. i'm going to predict -- i'm not as optimistic as my friends. the coa
the responsibility of putting together a school finance program. this was to pay for our children's education. i had to look at every single tax available, a sales-tax and income-tax, you name it. i have done it. so did the lieutenant governor at the time. that is something the lieutenant governor of the time said was our responsibility. you would not know anything about it. what you do not do is do your job as a legislator, worried problems will come along later, to try to run a campaign. >> i do not blame you. >> went over and over again, there is nothing else to suggest. that is all you do. >> there is nothing else to suggest that. i am sorry, mr. sadler, i think you lied. i am sorry you want to attack me personally. and impugn my character. i do not intend to reciprocate. that is a misstatement. there's a sharp policy different between the policies you have advocated and are advocating. i also think -- >> let him finish, please. >> if you will stop him in a reasonable time -- he just goes on for 20 minutes. >> we only have two minutes left ear. we will try to wrap up. >> mr. cruz, if you are suc
support me because of my bipartisan record. i have a record of accomplishment. i work on education bills and a tax cut. that was done with the republican governor, is split between republicans and democrats in the house and senate. it was a bipartisan effort. we got it done for texas. road. been on the i really do not know. >> mr. sadler, a democrat has not won a statewide office in texas since 1994. do you consider this an uphill battle? >> for an open senate seat, it is always a battle, and should be, and needs to be, regardless of the party. i understand we have not elected a democrat in a long time. >> let's go to mr. cruz. he said the day after you beat lt. governor dewhurst, he said he would run scared for the general election. but you have agreed to this and what other debt -- televised debate. you criticized governor dewhurst for having almost 40 candidate forms up to the primary, but are you planning its eighth and coasting? safe and coasting? >> we have been crisscrossing the state of texas. we have been all over the state, literally hundreds of dop's and vfw halls and enny's t
to afford an education. i think that is important -- an important part of being a parent. are you suggesting that if someone has means, that the national debt does not affect them? help me with the question. >> i know people who cannot afford to pay their mortgage on their homes. their car payment. have had personal problems with the national debt -- i have had problems with the national debt. how has it affected you? >> i think she means more the recession, the economic problems. >> you ought to be in the white house for a day and hear what i hear and see what i see. and touch the people that i touch from time to time. i was in a church. a black church. >> we missed the question. but the question was, how does the national debt affect you? he walked across and said, i feel your pain. [laughter] sitting here as a journalist watching that, i am struck by two things. the moderator is doing a lot of interpretation. but there seems to be a genuine moment. i remember him as a very controlled, very calm. nearly rising to -- you ought to be in the white house. that is an interesting line. that is a
and education. governor romney talked about medicaid and how we can send it back to the states. that means a 30% cut in the primary program we held for seniors in nursing homes, kids with disabilities. that is not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> what about simpsons bowles? >> i have my own plans. if you want to make adjustments, make it. go to congress and fight for it. >> that is what we have done. >> you have been president for four years. he said he would cut the deficit in half. we still have trillion-dollar deficits. if you are reelected, we will get to a trillion-dollar debt. you have said you will cut the deficit in half. you find $4 trillion in cuts. we still show trillion-dollar deficits every year. that does not get the job done. why is it that i do not want to raise taxes? i do not want to raise taxes on people. in 2010, he said he would extend the tax policies we have now and not raise taxes because when the economy is going slow like this, you should not raise taxes on anyone. the economy is still going slow. it is growing more slowly now than when he made that statemen
